This model is the W528 VCR, but my manual includes both models

Hello, I have a problem with this vrc making the picture roll all the time. It may or may not be a problem in recording, but it is absolutely a problem in play back. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem? Thank you. Azor

First check vertical hold control on your Tv. If iot is ok - ie. the picture does not roll on your broadcast picture, then check the VCR. Are you playing old tapes? If they are old, or if your VCR is old, it is possible that your VCR is chewing the tape. Flip the tape cover flap of your cassette and see if the lower edge of your Tape is OK? If it is chewed up, then the Control pulse signal has been damaged. Cheweing of tapes happens when the Capstan pinch Roller is old. replace the Roller.

Does it do this with other television sets? If so, then it indicates the problem resides in the VCR. Rolling as you describe suggests either the VCR isn't producing a clean enough vertical sync pulse in the video signal, or the TV circuitry isn't processing the pulse properly. First, try cleaning the heads (not just the video head, but also the audio/control head which is to the right of the rotating video head. If this doesn't fix the problem, an electronic problem is likely. Unless this is a high dollar unit, repair is not recommended, as VCRs of the last 10 years or so are essentially disposable. I've done some looking on the 'net regarding copy protection, and it doesn't look like this is an issue here.

I need the Remote Control instructions....Hitachi VCR+ (CLU-434VP)

Hello


I need to know the model of the hitechi vcr, the model you have included is the remote, this is a generic remote, they do not have their own manuals. So once I get the model of your vcr I can find the manual your looking for.


Thanks.

Lost remote on toshiba w528

You can select those to record with out the remote by setting the record timer to record. For example, if you want to record from one of those input channels on Friday 1 January 2009 at 9:00 to 11:00, it will allow you to choose that as an input channel in that program menu. If not, you will want to buy a replacement remote. VC-522 is no longer available, but VC-617 and other models are.

Toshiba w528 vcr tape eating

Tape "eating" is usually caused by a no take-up condition, that is, the take-up spindle isn't being driven, and thus a certain amount of tape spools out inside the mechanism until the logic circuit senses an error condition and places the machine in an off or stop mode. Cleaning the head shouldn't cause this, assuming you knew what you were doing, and nothing was broken or bent in the process. Look down in between the spindles, and you will see an idler wheel which pivots between the spindles, depending if the mode is Rewind, Fast forward or play. This idler mechanism should pivot freely. If the grease is dried or sticky, or the idler is otherwise broken- gear teeth missing, etc. such must be corrected. If the idler needs replacement, one might be available from the manufacturer, or a parts supplier such as MCM Electronics.

Mitsubishi HS-U445

Check batteries in remote- maybe they are weak/dead. Do the buttons on VCR itself do anything? Unplug VCR for a few minutes, perhaps this will clear the condition. Mitsubishi doesn't show your model, but perhaps this one will be close enough: http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/j/i/18326/HSU449.html?cid=42
